Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you've been identified as extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 by the NHS and need to self-isolate, call 0800 408 1447 for support.

Advice for everyone on coronavirus is available on our website or on 01926 410410.

Here at Warwickshire County Council, we recognise that these times are unprecedented for local businesses. This is why we are putting together guidance for local employers and businesses to get back up and running and operating safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will be running our own webinars as well as introducing you to webinars operating with local partners that you may find useful to attend. If you are unable to attend, where possible we will put up recordings of these sessions that can be watched at a later date. Please do remember that any guidance would have been given as per the date it was issued so may have been updated.

The Government has issued guidance covering eight workplace settings, which are allowed to be open. These include outdoor environments, construction sites, factories and take-aways, setting out practical steps for these businesses to focus on, which should be implemented as soon as possible. This also includes a printable notice that businesses can display to show they have followed this guidance.

From 1 June, some additional businesses will be allowed to reopen. These are likely to include non-essential retail, though this is still to be confirmed.

From 4 July, we are expecting that businesses in the hospitality and personal care sector will be allowed to resume trading, though it is expected there will be strict guidelines to follow. As soon as we are aware of these guidelines, we will make you aware.

These dates are very much dependent on the infection and mortality rates continuing to reduce, as per the five-point plan put in place by the UK government.

Our most recent webinar, COVID Secure in the Workplace, took place on 20 May but you can watch a recording below. This was a Q&A session with WCC and partners.
